ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a hearing by the U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pension Committee on the biogeneric debate. Chairman Edward Kennedy said that the hearing would help the committee to know if a proposal to allow follow-on biologics should be included in a bill on drug safety and the Prescription Drug User Fee Act. The legislation introduced by Senators Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) aims to provide the Food and Drug Administration with authority to make science-based decisions.
